Grant Award Process; Administration of Grants
Applications submitted to the Oregon Cultural Trust pursuant to its RFP will be reviewed by staff to determine whether the applicant is eligible to receive a Cultural Development Grant. Ineligible applications will be returned to applicants with an explanation.
Applications from applicants eligible to receive a Cultural Development Grant will be reviewed by a panel of cultural professionals designated by the Cultural Trust Board who will make funding recommendations to the Cultural Trust Board.
The Cultural Trust Board evaluates qualified proposals and determines final grant awards. Announcement of grants are made as provided in the RFP.
Grants are administered by the Arts Program of the Oregon Business Development Department.
